Railroad executive William Gardner was charged with two felonies this morning for making illegal campaign contributions.
According to the complaint, he engaged in a pattern of having Wisconsin & Southern Railroad employees and his daughter make political contributions to Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign and then reimbursed them with either personal or company funds.
Gardner, the president and CEO of the railroad, faces two class I felonies, one for making excessive contributions and the other for unlawful donations.
